on Finding Work
I am a 26 year old with a Master's degree in Education. I worked very hard last year applying for jobs in and out of Oregon. I am confident that my resume is stellar, my letters of recommendation are amazing and I will be a great teacher. I have no job. I cannot get a job. I did not grow up here, and I don't have the connections other people do. I am going to try again; however, I am not sure what to do with my $70,000 of debt if I do not get a job.
Part of the problem here is that the market is saturated. Portland State, where I went to school, graduates so many people without jobs. They do not seem to care in the least. Of the 30 people in my cohort, 5 got jobs. This is unacceptable, and nobody is saying or doing anything about it.
